About CHPI

Independent think-tank.

Launched in 2012, Canadian Health Policy Institute Inc. (CHPI) is a private-sector research enterprise and the publisher of Canadian Health Policy (CHP) Journal.

Platform for alternative analyses and innovative ideas that shape health policy.

CHP Journal features the work of CHPI affiliated researchers and external independent authors. The Journal is focused on health economics and policy issues affecting patient access to innovative medical goods and services and the cost related issues of sustainability and value for money for taxpayers. 


The Institute and the Journal are funded by sales of articles and subscriptions to readers. We set articles free (or at reduced prices) if the research and publishing costs are recovered through sponsorship.


Our published research is subject to formal review and critique by CHP editorial staff, CHPI affiliated researchers and independent external experts in health economics and health policy.

Policy intelligence.

CHPI offers expert consulting services to non-profit, corporate and government clients for non-published research projects through its policy intelligence unit (PolicyIntel).
